New Jaguar & Land Rover electric cars: Jaguar to all-electric by 2025, EV Land Rover coming 2024
February 15, 2021 by
Jaguar & Land Rover have laid out plans for a new range of electric cars, including a whole range of pure-EV Jaguars by 2025 and an all-new electric Land Rover in 2024.
- Jaguar, Land Rover reveal electric plans
- Jaguar to go all-electric by 2025
- First Land Rover electric car coming in 2024
- Six Land Rover EVs in next five years
- Goal of becoming net-carbon-zero by 2029
Jaguar and Land Rover have revealed the next steps in their plan for a range of new electric cars — with Jaguar to become an all-electric manufacturer by 2025.
The British company has laid out a roadmap to becoming a net-zero carbon emissions business by 2039, which includes a radical approach to switching over to EVs.
As well as Jaguar making the switch to becoming an all-electric brand by 2025, there are plans for all Land Rover models to be offered with an electric powertrain by the end of the decade as well.
Six Land Rover EV variants are due to arrive within the next five years, with the first coming in 2024. It hasn’t been confirmed which of its models will play host to that first battery pack, or if it will be a completely new car.
As well as pure electric, Jaguar Land Rover is also working on hydrogen fuel cell technology. This alternative fuel works similarly to electric cars, mixing hydrogen with oxygen to generate electricity and power electric motors to drive the wheels.
The British manufacturer hasn’t said when it aims to introduce such a car but has confirmed development is underway with a view to the first prototype cars hitting UK roads within the next 12 months.
To help with Jaguar and Land Rover’s respective moves to electric, three completely new sets of EV underpinnings will be introduced. Two of these will be exclusive to Land Rover and one will be set aside for a range of new electric cars from Jaguar.
Jaguar already has its first all-electric car in the I-Pace, which had been planned to be followed up with by a battery-powered XJ. However, the new saloon has been axed as part of these new plans.
